"AWESOME 'CHEESEBURGER PUNK' in the same wonderful vein as Vom.
These guys were around in Southern California in the early-80s, doing a good
job of pissing off people with anthems like, 'Kill the Hostages' (in reaction
to the Iranian hostage crisis), 'White Boy Singing Ska,' and 'I Hate Sports.'
If you listen to the lyrics, these guys are actually much smarter than they
come off in their crashing, bashing two minutes songs. Benedict Arnold
and the Traitors were just one of the many great Punk bands exploding
with anger and energy in the early-80s. Sadly overlooked, terribly
underrated. Granted, they're not the best Punk band in the world and are
far from the best musicians, but that's exactly what makes them so great.
Their passion alone carries them well past many of the big Punk bands of
then and now." -- Mark Murrmann writing for Listen.com, May, 2000.
